In this week's edition of the 106.3 WORD Cover story, we're taking a look at sustainable energy -- namely solar power -- and the way it's impacting us in the Upstate. I wanted to know how much of the solar you see around town is being sent back to Duke Energy for sale, I also found out that Duke Energy and South Carolina are leading the nation in solar energy production. When you listen to the interview, you will also find out what the downsides to solar energy are, how much the average person saves when they install solar, and much more.
